With Paradise Island, Lake gave listeners no real surprises. Indeed, their style of music could almost be looked on as a brand name. You pretty much knew from the get-go that any Lake album would be composed of well-written, arranged, and performed pop/rock pieces that showed slight (and sometimes not so slight) signs of progressive rock tendencies. The funny thing is, though, that the albums never really sound the same -- they only sound like Lake albums. It is a shame these discs are so hard to come by. They are worth the effort, though, especially if music by bands like Supertramp is your thing. ~ Gary Hill, All Music Guide.

Lake II continues in the same mode as the first eponomyous album and Paradise Island, their third. The nice thing about all three albums is that, although they have a distinctive sound thanks to the vocals of late singer James Hopkins-Harrison, their albums don't sound the same. Every song stands on its own. I wouldn't recommend anything after Paradise Island, though. These first three are definitive Lake, that's the reason that 14 of the 17 tracks from their greatest hits CD are from these three albums.
These guys were just under appreciated!!!!!! What a shame. So much good music that was never heard.
THIS ALBUM IS AWESOME! As a child of the 80's and 90's, this album had awesome musical emotion! Harmonies that SMOKE Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young!
Well written and performance beyond anything I've heard in a while, this band is a refreshing, nostalgic musical journey that is hastily embraced by the soul!
a buddy of mine just made a tape of lakes best for me because he knew i liked this style of music but i've never heard of them. wow! am i surprised this is the way music should be played. great harmonies and vocals along with excellent musicianship.if you like toto, kansas shooting star and pablo cruise this is a combo of all of them at its best especially scooby doobies and see them glow . great songs. for any fan of that late 70's early 80's classic rock this is a must along with their 1st album.GET IT!
This German-American band is one of those "should have made it" bands. This is their 2nd out of four American releases and I think their best. Superb harmonies, flawless musicianship and a whole load of melody. Having a current album and cd collection that numbers over a thousand, I can without hesitation say that it's in my top 5. Five band members take part in their awesome harmonies. Sure it's got that late 70s sound but so many of the songs are timeless. "Love's The Jailor" is a painful ballad about the confusion and turmoil about being at a place in a relationship and in life that's not quite what was expected. I've yet to figure out who "See Them Glow" is about..but the story about a famous singer and his lover is a song not to be missed!

Debut album from 1977. From the opening piece, 'Key To the Rhyme,' the group established themselves in the same vein as bands like Supertramp.

70's Classic, March 7, 2003
This album has to be considered a 70's gem although I don't remember it getting much if any radio play. I used to see this album in record stores and wonder what it sounded like. Then I was at a friend's who had it. After listening to it I decided to buy one for myself. "On the Run", "Timebomb", and "Chasing Colours" are my favorites but there isn't a bad song on here. It's probably a different kind of rock then most people are used to but that's what made rock great--all the variety that you could still classify as rock and roll. This album definitely stands out as one of the better rock albums of the 70's.
I love this album.....in fact, I own an album. I don't think it ever took off like it should have, but, maybe it was before its time. The song "Do I Love You?" is one of my faves. Everytime I
I hear it, it sends me back to my youth and everything was so exciting. One of my loves dedicated it to me. Over all, just a great listening album!
